After they reached the top of evolution,
gifted above all other species in space,
cults of excess established,
obsessed by the lust for pleasure.
Holding nothing but perfection in their hands.
But like all mortal beings they desired far more.
Seeking for eternal pleasure,
persuading of excess.
Exploring the fruits of decadence and avarice,
unseen, they grew in power and influence.
Initiating more into their strange and shadowy creeds.
As corruption gradually took hold upon them,
echoes of ecstasy and agony began to ripple through time and space .
Reflections of intense experiences began to coalesce.
All the shifting tides of the empyrean can take form of raw emotions; to themselves.
The constant stream of indulgence, pouring from the empire, was as unstoppable as the tides.
It nourished and empowered that, which lay within.
A nascent vortex of excess,
content for now to wait and to grow
So the empire began to mire of its own corruption and drew in treason.
